Teachers of modern languages will be able to enhance and develop their teaching strategies at a professional development day at the University of Aberdeen this week.
The course which takes place on Thursday (May 19) will focus on a number of areas relevant to the Higher and Advanced Higher syllabus.
The course has been developed by the University’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Services, the School of Language and Literature, and local teachers.
The professional development event aims to provide modern languages teachers an opportunity to find out about and access a range of resources out with the school environment; increase confidence in teaching film; undertake discussions with native speakers (French and German); and network with other teachers and University staff.
Dr Glynn Hesketh, Senior Lecturer in French at the University, said: “We are delighted to be able to provide an opportunity for teachers of modern languages to come into the University and meet some of the experts here as well as make use of a wide range of resources.”
Nikki Musgrave, Commercial and CPD Business Development Officer added: “This event is part of a range of CPD activities for teachers of different subject areas and events for S6 pupils offered by CPD Services and the S6 Enhancement Unit.”
The day runs from 9.30am – 3.30pm and includes a session on teaching film, an opportunity to access resources both in the University and via the internet, and sessions with native speakers.
Places on the course are limited and interested participants are urged to contact Nikki Musgrave, CPD Services, Research and Innovation, University of Aberdeen, on (01224) 272523, or email: email@example.com.
